To silence a growing chorus of discontent against an operating system design that's remained more or less static since 2007, Apple needed to go big. With iOS 7, it did. Apple's crisp, newly announced OS update gives the mobile operating system a radical new look and some first-for-Apple features for iPhone and iPad fans, like quick-access system controls, automatic app updates, and Apple's AirDrop file-sharing system. The visual overhaul, which becomes available this fall, is a clean sweep that changes absolutely everything, from the typography and color schemes to the typical icon and button shape across the entire platform. And we mean the whole thing -- from the Safari browser to the photo app. While there are a few notable new features in iOS 7, the new interface is by far the platform's deepest felt and most profoundly changed of the entire batch. Apple's other features are relatively uninspiring and do little to challenge competitors; however, we have a feeling that

[url=http://reviews.cnet.com/apple-ios-7/]Apple's iOS 7 comes out swinging[/url]with an overhauled design that reskins practically every element with a gleaming new interface. From what we've seen so far (including hands-on time with iOS 7 on an iPhone 5,) we like the latest 'do. A lot. While some new behaviors go along with the updated apps, [url=http://reviews.cnet.com/apple-ios-7/]iOS 7[/url]'s changes are more cosmetic and iterative than they are groundbreaking. That's completely understandable; not every update can spark a revolution. However, apart from a few notable innovations, iOS 7 doesn't seem like it's enough to overturn criticism that its growth has stalled, that it's less innovative than arch-rival [url=http://www.cnet.com/android-atlas/]Android[/url], and that it borrows heavily from other competitors (in truth, they all stea
Tech experts have accused Apple's new software of being designed more for its critics than its army of loyal fans. The bold redesign, which scraps Apple's iconic style in favour of a more generic Android look, was called 'almost unrecognisable' by Jan Dawson, analyst at IT research firm Ovum, and will 'disorientate' customers in a bid to prove the company can still innovate. Others hailed the redesign as being a step too far with Paddy Smith, online editor at Stuff.tv adding he hoped the 'the biggest update to iOS since iPhone won't also prove to be its most controversial.' GameSpot UK's Mark Walton even accused Apple of going on the 'defensive' during its keynote speech at its annual WWDC and said the changes show criticism about the company's supposed lack of innovation since Steve Jobs died had finally got to it.

If you move at a snail's pace, you have more time than most to admire the wonders of nature. And this snail seemed entranced by what must have seemed a vast bubble that it encountered in a tiny puddle on a Ukrainian country lane. These beautiful close-up images show the snail peering at the bubble and then plunging its head through it.

Just installed Webroot. Checked PC Security on my online account. My settings for Webroot Secure Anywhere are "user defined" although I didnt change anything, just installed it. When I click on the help icon on this page, a number of security settings are listed. The "Medium(recommended)" setting is highlighted in blue. Should I change my security settings to this, and if so, what will it do as regards the program? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

As some of you know, E3 2013 is upon us. And while this year's Xbox One and PS4 announcements did give users a glimpse into the next-gen consoles, they were mostly focused on the social and all-purpose capabilities of the new machines. At E3, on the other hand, it's all been about the games (so far). Microsoft was up first with it's announcement of sequels and Xbox One exclusives (as well as non-exclusives). Among the sequels, there was the impressive looking Forza follow-up, Forza Motorsport 5, which should put a smile on the faces of both car-lovers and racing fanatics. Perhaps (actually without a doubt), the more exciting sequel news for the majority of gamers will be the much-anticipated Halo 5. Although it won't be available at launch, Microsoft promises a release during the first half of 2014. Other notable announcements were a Killer Instinct reboot (Finally!), the futuristically-cool-yet-beautiful Quantum Break, and third person slice-em-up Ryse: Son of Rome. Chec
This is a bit of history and trivia. Do you know whom thee first person was that wrote a program and when??? Also who was the first person to successfully run a program on a computer????

A ship which sank during a violent storm a century ago has been found largely intact at the bottom of a lake by a group of divers. The Henry B. Smith freighter went down in Lake Superior, Michigan after sailing into the Great Lakes Storm of November 1913. The Duluth News Tribune reported on Sunday that shipwreck hunters found the boat last month in about 535 feet of water off the shore of Marquette.

Insiders say to expect some surprises at this year’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, starting with some big announcements today that will be ‘polarizing.’ The first day of the highly anticipated yearly meeting always sees the big product and software debuts, and this year Apple blogger in-the-know John Gruber says even he’s unsure what to expect, except the unexpectedly big. ‘The one thing I keep hearing over and over again from friends who would know is some of the stuff they're going to show is "polarizing,”’ the blogger said in his podcast about the conference.

Well the big race is next weekend and I was out testing the car this weekend. I was a little bit nervous having never driven a race car with slicks/aero and a sequential box! The weather down in Mondello was stunning one of the hottest days of the year. Getting into the car was a little tought with the Formula 5 being a little smaller than what I am used to. First problem was the belts, the crouch belt was far too tight for my liking! I was also struggling with the shifter it was too close to the bulkhead so I could get my hand around it. Thankfully I got strapped in and went out on track. The clutch is very short and required alot of concentration to get a clean start. Once out of track I was really struggling with the gears, I was trying to count the gears as I went around but it was difficult to keep count! The biggest problem was I couldnt see the shift lights. Brought the car back in and didnt feel too happy, roll on the 2nd test session. The next test session I was
What if the plug was pulled today and no internet???? How would this affect you and your everyday life. My thoughts on this are.: Like the 80's. Work would be very menial and tedious. Lots of paperwork and faxes. Business communication would be much slower. Education would be duller and probably harder for teachers and students. People would not be able to connect with as many people socially as fast as they can today. Newspapers and TV would be the main source of entertainment. Phones would be the main source of communication. What are your thoughts on this????????????????????

Hiding your data in a "time hole?" The future is closer than you may think. According to this article, the proof of concept already exists. In fact, "The cloak successfully hid data added at a rate of 12.7 gigabits per second." If this research pans out, the results will be pretty exciting to see. [i] [/i] [i]If you’ve ever wanted to edit an event from your history, then help may soon be at hand. Electrical engineers have used lasers to create a cloak that can hide communications in a 'time hole', so that it seems as if they were never sent. The method, published today in Nature, is the first that can cloak data streams sent at the rapid rates typically seen in telecommunications systems. It opens the door to ultra-secure transmission schemes, and may also provide a way to better shield information from noise corruption.[/i] [i] [/i] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/3876i002060A2616ACDCD.jpg[/img] [i] [/i] This is

Worldwide, 1.5 billion smart phones will ship in 2017, according to the latest country level forecasts from Canalys, to account for 73% of all mobile phone shipments. In North America and Western Europe, virtually all phones shipped will be smart phones. Even in Greater China, smart phones will represent 95% of all mobile phone shipments in 2017. The smart phone market will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18%, while mobile phone shipments will decline by a CAGR of 9% over the same period. Growth in the smart phone market will continue to be driven by Android. In 2012, over 470 million Android-based smart phones shipped and by 2017 this number will have more than doubled to over 1 billion, giving the platform a 67.1% market share. Over the same period, it is forecast that Apple’s shipments will continue to grow, but at a slower rate than the total smart phone market and hence its market share will fall from 19.5% in 2012 to 14.1% in 2017. ‘Apple’s growth will be c
